Marvellous Marmalade Recipe

Oranges are only in season for another month or so, so make a delicious marmalade while they’re at their best! If sealed properly this marmalade will last months and months so it’s really worthwhile making and our recipe is super easy to follow too.

This marmalade tastes great on toast and crumpets but don’t be afraid to try something new and a bit different with your homemade marmalade. Marmalade makes a great glaze for roasted meats, try mixing it with Gran Marnier as a glaze for duck or mix with chipotle chillies for a spicy and sweet pork marinade. Whatever you do with your marmalade, tweet us @Kilner_UK and let us know how you use yours!
